TIIE SECRET. IN a fair lady's heart once a Secret was lurking; It d iiil(', it tunibleti it loiig'd to get out; The LIPS half-betrayed it by smiling and smirking, And TONOGE was impatient to blab it, no doubt: But HONOUR looked grufF on the subject, and gave it In charge to the TEETH (so enchantingly white), Should the captive attempt an elopement, to save it By giving the Lirs aw admonishing bite. 'Twas sai(i, and 'twas settled SIR HONOUR departed TONG UE quivered and trembled, but dared not rebel; When right to its tip SECRET suddenly started, And half, in a whisper, escaped from his cell: Quoth the TEETH, in a pet," We'll be even for this," And they bit very smartly above and beneath; But the LIPS in that instant were bribed with a Kiss, And they popp'd out the secret' in spite of their teeth.5 TThe following whimsical lines are extracted from a recent work, entitled" Outlines of Edinburgh, and other Poems;" by W. Anderson.] When looking for lodgings, a stranger will see Some customs abstruse to a Southron like me. I saw" Lodgings" put up; and began to explore A dirty stone staircase and came to a door, With a name, and a bell, and a scraper, complete, ] (Like the doors which, in England, we have in the street). I rung-and was told there were lodgings next door; 'So [turn'd, and went down the stone staircase once more; And I search'd the next house for these lodglllgs ot theirs; But discovered at length that next door meant tip stairs; And, on the next story, I speedily came To another street-door, with bell, scraper, and name And if you go up eight or nine stories more, Each has scraper, and bell, and a perfect street-door. This custom at first could not fail to create a <5reat marvel in me, for they all live in strata! One over another, from bottom to top, And beginning below with a stratum of shop! And the mixture is stichr that we often may see an Undoubted pure stratum 'twixt strata plebeian; You may call on a friend of some ton, and discover him With a shoemaker under, and a stay maker over him Mu dwelling begins with a perriwig-maker; | I'm under a corn-cutter, over a baker; A hove the chiropodist, cookery too O'er that is a laundress; o'er her is a Jew: A painter and tailor divide the eighth flat, And a dancing academy thrives over that: We'll leave higher circles unnam'd :—T'other night, My landlady enter'd my room in a fright, And cried, half in tears, with a face full of woe, Your lumn's in a low, sir, your lumn's in a low." I taugh'd in her face for her hasty oration. To me, had convey'd very small information: Indignant she bawl'd, when she saw that I laugh'd. Yr.u're foolish—your lumn's in a low—the man's daft!" *• The baker the oven !"—I now comprehended, And join'd in the cry, ere the uproar was ended,— i' c. The baker the oven oh, oh is it so ?

ITALY. The following extract of a private letter from Naples, dated Sep:. 30, 1822, presents an animated arid elegant description of scenes which no repe- tition can rob of their power to charm, whether as objects of intellectual associations, ôr, as vivid pictures traced by the pen of an enlightened tra- veller: It is not easy for an Englishman, on entering Italy, with the thousand memories and associations thar crowd around him, and the intoxicating sensations, which the consciousness of where he is, excites in him, to lay down at «ncc the prejudices which he owes to his country, and her constitution. At least I found it so, when I first stopped at IVJilnn from Switzerland. In this magnificent city, once the rival of Rome, and long the capital of all independent kingdom, I listened wIth some impatience to the details of Austrian imprisonment, and sentences, and the frequent ant31s the Italian Nobility for Carbonarism. It may be s;iid, that the condition of a slave can scarcely admit of aggravation; but, in the case of Milan particularly, and Italy in general, Napoleon at least gilded her chains, and Lung them less gallingly upon her: now, I believe, she feels lhe naked iron lit her vcr)' Iwalt. Theexactionsof money and men are doubled by the Austrian Government, ai-ti 110 public benefit is confptred—nopubticimpfovement continued. The Cathedral there is only second in splen- dour, among the Italian Churches, to St. Peter's. The architecture, which is not beautiful, is Gothic; but the boast of this gorgeous edifice is the subterranean chapel of San Carlo Borromeo, valued at more than two millions. I must confess I was more gratified by my ascent to the tower, and the view from it. The plain of Lombardy, coveied with vineyards and corn fields, extended on one side to tire Alps, and on the other to the horizonimme- diately beneath me rose the turrets and spires, the palaces and barracks,—the pride and shame of Milan. The glo- ries of the world seemed spread out around me,—the magnificence of the vast pile itself, 01 which each minaret, with j¡, many statues, and exquisite frelwoik, had alone been sufficient subject for wonder and observation; the variety and elegance of the various galleries and stages; llic intricacy and harmony of the whole immense fabric^ filled, and, I may say, dazzled my mind, which was still labouring under the impressions of the novel and singulaijy romantic views which the passage of the Alps had left upon it. I had just before seen those stupendous monu- ments of Nature's pride, and I now looked upon the triumphs of art. The transition gave a double effect to the prospect I enjoyed—from the awful and sublime la- bours of a God—from the wild, the simple, the terrible, and majestic—from scenes of peril, ct beauty in its most serious and sternest aspect, of horror and desolation, where n!I was left with the early impress of creation all as it had been from the beginning, and will remain to the end of time;—I turned to the elegant, the tasteful, the rich, the luxurious, aijd perishable. It was a fine field for a philo- sopher; but an enthusiast, like myself. had only the power of enjoying it, without further benefit to himself or others. I could not resist a sight of the Iron Crown, which is only a plain golden band set with gems; in its centre a piece ot iron, which they call one of the nails of the cross, is enclosed between two small glass plates. The crown itself is enshrined within a large cross, opened and glazed over in several places, for the purpose of disclosing to the e.) ei of the faithful, the sponge, the reed, and some of the thorns, which were used at the crucifixion. The ceremo- nies attending the exhibition of this holy lion, the curtsey- ings. the genuflexions, the prayers, and incense burnings, were enough to weary the patience even of Archbishop Luid, and drive the remnant of brains from the head of iMarse rfeadrigg, if they could have peeped up to witness these sacerdotal antics. A priest had informed me, in the morning, that St. Peter had discovered these relics to Mary Magdalen in a dream but the reverend showman assured me it was no such thing; that the Saviour appeared to St. Helena, and instructed her where to find the cross; (hat she was successful in following his directions, and gave this very nail, a part of the discovery, to St. Gregory, tvtio bestowed it oil the Cathedral of Mouza; that the other account was an entire fabrication, calculated to mis- lead the unwary, and not at all to be credited. I left my holy light," fully convinced of the superiority of his evidence, which I was obliged to purchase at six francs, while the incorrect h'utory only cost me two. Truth is not dear at four francs in Italy, where I rather think it is a contraband article, for one scarcely ever hears of it. This is comparatively a very lespectable evidence of the ener- vating, and, I cannot but think, demoralizing, bigotrv, 01 this degraded people. "If I had not been going to Venice, I should have quitted Milan with regret, where I had found much to interest and delight me. I passed thro' Vicenza. Verona, and Padua, in my way to the sea-girt city. and owe to Shakespeare the chief pleasure I derived from my journey. his not possible to approach Verona, which looks the sort of feudal city that Capulet and Montague might have set by 1 the ears, without thinking of Juliet and her Romeo." I J assure you their images haunted me through the streets, and though the moon was up, before I could prevail on' myself to leave the Amphitheatre, which is magnificent I r would not forego the pleasure c* a pilgrimage'to c Janets tomb, which they show in a garden formerly attached v to a Franciscan convent. They have a tolerably correct r story, hut I should he very sorrv to he called on for an affi- davit of its truth stiil i Celieved it all at the tin^e, and in a a 80cli :t placc, awd under such a night, which was like that j r which Shakespeare himself imagined, no one could have c refused to credit much more. For my own part, I stood ( beside the old empty coffin, for it is little more, with all the fond credulity of a devoted pilgrim at the shrine of a Saint, whose story had been the d.eam and meditation of his earlier years of boyhood and enthusiasm. I will not pretend to justify my indulgence of this temper, which de. lights so much to "took through the waves of time," and live for a while in the days that are past; but if I resigned it, I should relinquish one of the chief stimulants to my cu- riosity, and the most pleasing recompense of my fatigue.- Even at Venice, which I think has afforded me more gra- tification than any other city in Italy, I attribute much of my delight to Shakespeare, Byron, and Otway. The particular advantage of Venice is in the undis- turbed state in which a traveller finds the buildings and monuments,—the records of great or extraordinary actions, —and, indeed, so much so, that he may gather a little his- tory of the republic from the pictures, the tombs, and pa- laces existing there. TheDonati.Pisani.Foscari.&c. still give their names to the dwellings of their ancestors, and the tombs of all, or most, are to be found in the differ- ent churches. Among these latter, though least celebrated, yet eqaally interesting from his misfortunes with many of his predecessors (for he outlived his honours and his country's). Manini has left u memorial of himself that has to me something pathetic in its simple and unpretending brevity. Among the goigeous ornilments that decorate the sepulchres of the other Princes, a simple slab, with the in- scription of Cineres Manini," is all the distinction that is paid to the last Doge of Venice."
BUONAPARTE'S LITERARY WORKS. As several publications purporting to emanate from Buonaparte are announced, it may not be unacceptable to give a list of some of his works already in circulation, as contained in the Annuaire Necrologique, par A. Mahul. 1. Letter of M. Buonaparte to M. Matteo Buttafuoco, Deputy from Corsica to the National Assembly, 1790. This letter is signed Buonaparte," and dated from my Cabinet of Milleli, the 28th January, in the second year 01 Liberty"—i. e. 1790. It consists of 28 pages octavo, and is without either place of publication or printer's name. It has been ascertained, however, to have issued from the press of M. Fr. X. Joly, printer at Dôle, when Buonaparte was Lieutenant in the Regiment of La Fere-Artillerie. He corrected the last proof sheets himself, and used to walk to for that purpose setting out from Auxonne at four o'clock in the morning, and, after his literary labour, par- takirg of a very frugal breakfast with M. Joly, from whose house lie walked back to his garrison by noon. The dis- tance to and fro, thus performed, is eight Post leagues This letter to M. Buttafuoco is in effect a libel, written in an Italico-French style. against this Deputy of the Cor- sican Noblesse, who sat on the Right Side of the Constitu- ent Assembly. It adverts to a Patriotic Society at Ajaccio, and contains a panegyric upon the author's compatriot Arena, whom lie afterwards caused to perish on the scaf- fold. Mr. Amanthon, of Dijon, has a copy ex autorisdono to a female of Auxonne. II. The Supper of Beaucaire. Avignon, Sabin Tournal, 1793. Octavo and Anonymous.

An Edition in 3 81110. with the title difFering a little, is also in circulation. The copy came from Mr. O'Meara to the Printer; us he swore upon his trial for publishing it. 5. On the Education of Princess of the Bloed of Fiance. 8vo. Dated St. Cloud, 27 July, 1812. The English trans- lation is cal.'ed, "System of Education for the Infant Kfag of Rome and the Manual is said to have been ad- dressed to the Imperial Council of State, under the personal inspection of Buonaparte. 6. Buonaparte sometimes sent Notes to the Moime-ur, on the Translation from the English Journals which were submitted to him. The article headed Angleterre," in the Moniteur under the Imperial Government, is frequently loaded with Notes. M. Burrere de Vieusac was the person appointed to write them but the most violent aie from Buonaparte's own hand. AGRICULTURE.—Mr. Hall,of Little Marshall, near Exeter, in a letter in the Farmer's Journal, commu- nicates the following results of experiments in steeping wheat and turnips:— A field of seven acres and a half, sown with wheat on his estate last year, was reaped at harvest free from smut, the seed having been steeped for eight hours in a solution of sutphute of copper, as recommended by Sir John Sinclair; while eight acres sown on a farm befonging to a friend of mine, who had his seed of me, and which was put in by his hind, without any preparation of steeping, was very much infected with smut. I believe that the greatest means of avoiding the at- tacks of the parasitic fungi, with which wheats, &c. are af- fected in particular seasons, is to keep the land in high order, and use the cleanest and best seed for I conceive that the system of the plant (perhaps from stagnation of growth) must be prepared by sickness of some sort to re- ceive the insidious enemy; with this view, the steeping certainly becomes an assistant as a preventive, for by it, and the skimming, all the light, partly eaten, and inefficient seeds, are either skimmed off or destroyed." Sait.-On a field preparing for turnips this summer, two thirds of which were finished ploughing, my hind sowed the salt intended for the dressing, thereby leaving one-third of the field io be ploughed down, while the salt 011 the other pait was merely harrowed in on the surfaces and which I aiways consider the best mode of application for turnips. The turnips of that part where the salt is uppermost have grown very luxuriantly, while those on the third part of the field, where the salt was turned under furrow, were eaten off by the beetle, and though on second sowing they have grown, slill their growth is of a very different nature indeed to the other part cf the held a few rows of the first sown are complete all through the field, but the part where the different application of the salt occurred is discernible at any distance where the field can be seen. Myreasonfor considering top-dressing the best mode of applying salt for turnips is, that the large quantity of moisture absorbed by the salt to effect its solution insures that degree of humidity so necessary to the growth of the young turnip plant. As a proof of this, the season before last I had my turnips sown as usual, the salt having been harrowed in on the surface about a fortnight previous, and it so happened (although last spring and summer twelve-months were wet) that no rain fell with us just at that period for several weeks and while my neighbours had their turnips eaten off by the neetle, mine grew freshly, and always lodked as though hey had just had twenty-four hours rain upon them AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR OCTOllER.-Onr latest :rop, the potatoe universally harvested and stored, fully ustilying the predications as to quantity and quality. he quantity of this root at present cultivated in Britain and Ireland, compared with the growth of half a century since, na v be stated as more than 15 to I. From the continuance if the drought throughout September, the wheat seed-season vas so me iv hat late, but the warm and genial rams 01 "ie itesent month enabled the farmer to complete it in the best uanuer; the young wheats are every where above ground, :)fi upon warm and fruitful soils, make a beautiful appear- ucc. With reference to the present agricultural disireS3< t very smnll extent of land, indeca, has been th'rown out of :ulture. In belaud, even, the land left uncultivated is comparatively small. The warm showers have greatly im- proved the turnips; and upon fine light lands, some winter roots have been sown, with other green crops for spring sattle food. Much is not reported of the carrot crop, but we believe it to be good, affording an opportunity to those who judiciously allow that most wholesome diet to their horses, as a substitute for part of their corn. The prices of corn have been somewhat steady of late; indeed, fine sam- ples have generally hitherto fetched a considerable price; and, until Intely, the same might have been said of the superior aiticles in the flesh markets. There is an universal overflow in the country markets and fairs; the population is fully supplied and the means itioperatieu for the re- production of much effect; hence, the notion that a mere change of currency can possibly prove remedial in the case, is the most extravagant and fanciful that was ever set afloat. We believe, generally, the proprietors have done all in their power to support their tenantry. We have good reason to believe that the agricul- ture distress has seen its height, and that a pro- gressive improvement in all agricultural concerns is about to commence. We have our information from competent scources, and have formed our opinion from various inquiries made regarding this subject. Grain, it is believed, must rise consider- ably in value. Many grain larms have lately been turned into pasturage.-Glasgow Courier. On Friday last, a good sample of oats was shewn in Wallingford market, which had been produced in that town, in the common ground and open air, from seed of this year$growth The original seed was sown the latter end of February last, and the crop mown about the middle of June. On 2.3d June, some of the produce was sown, dnd a second crop cut on 23d October. The kind of oats selected for the experiment (which was on a small scale) is invariably of forward growth; yet such an instance of fecundity in a climate like our's, is perhaps almost unprecedented, and sufficiently proves the extraordinary fineness of the late summer. THE KrNG AND A MUSEUM OF ART.—It is well- known that England, with all its vaunting about Art, and its love for it, is the only State in Europe which does not possess a National Collection ot Pictures. His Majesty, with a view to remove this national disgrace, is said to have expressed a wish that a Museum should be erected to contain Works of Art, and to which the public shall have free and reasonable access. The Sovereign has been an ardent collector of pictures for many years, and the chambers of Carlton Palace exhibit some splen- did specimens of all the Flemish and Dutch Masters, and the most choice and admirable pictures painted during the bright era of the Italian school. These, numerous as they are, the King will freely contri- bute, together with the matchless Cartoons, by Raphael, now at Hampton Court, the Two Misers in Windsor Castle, and good selection from the Palaces at Kensington, Hampton Court, and Windsor, in addition to his own. The plan is to be carried into effect under the direction of a Com- mittee of Taste, and a power given to that Com- mittee, by Parliament, with a grant of certain funds, in order that no opportunity of enriching the col- lection by purchases (either abroad or at home) may be lost. Chambers are to be erected to con- tain the Elgin and Phygalian Marbles, and all the rare Works of Art now in the British Museum, so that the whole of our national treasures may be seen at once. THE BRITISH GAELERY.—This Gallery was on Wed- nesday and Thursday opened to the inspection of those who take an interest in the progress of our National School of Arts, with the copies, studies, &c. made from ancient masters, left in the Gallery by their patriotic owners. The general effect was curious; and the spectator was struck on beholding these fine productions of the dead, so long admired, mliltiplied into families by the imitative pencils of living artists. Many of the modern works are admirable; and though it may be only doing justice by halves, we cannot refrain from mentioning a lew of the pieces that chiefly attracted our notice. Among these, a copy of G. Poussin, of the full size, by Mr. Holland, and also smaller copies by Mr. G. Samuel and Mr. Malkin, appear to great advantage, even by the side of one of that painter's sweetest landscapes. One of the Children from the Vandyke family of King Charles, by J. Green, is charmingly done; and others by Mrs. Pearson, Mr. Rebson, and Mr. Sav, are nearly of equal merit. Maes and de Hooge are excellently copied in the Flemish School, by Childe, Edmonston, Novice, Leahy, Adam, &c. Miss Sharpe, and Miss L. Sharpe, have exquisite miniatures from sacred subjects — Mr. Drummond has made a copy of the Venus and Adonis, in which the flesh of the female figure is charmingly co- loured, and the bad drawing of the original right limb faithfully imitated. Other members of this artist's family are also distinguished by their performances. Mr. Brooke has some slight but spirited sketches. The name of Ross is attached to others. Kidd has a pretty small copy of Cuyp's gray horse. Mr. Forlang has begun Qunitin Matsy's Misers capitally, but the upper half cf the picture is unfinished. None of the studies from Teniers seem to be very successful, though Mr. Hastings and others have done fairly by parts. There is, however, a clever copy from C. Dolce, by gatter and some good heads from Coreggio, &c. by Wright, Johnson, Green, Tinter; and several admirable sea pieces from Vandevelde, especially by J. Reinagle, Wilson, Cafe, &c. A good copy from Titien's Otlio appears from the pencil pf Mr. Wilkins; and, upon the whole, the Exhibition was extremely inter- esting, We should observe, however, that rough sketches do not seem to consist with the nature of the design. Whatever is taken should be finished to the utmost ;-fol the artists should remember that the School is meant to facilitate their acquiring the best qualities of the Old Masters.— Literary Gazette. LIBERATION OF HUNT.—At half-past eight o'clock on Wednesday morning, Mr. Hunt made his exit from Ilchester Gaol, after a residence within the walls of that prison of two years and a half-a state of duress which has but little affected his personal appearance. SirChas.Wolseley,and Mr.Northmore of Exeter, accompanied him outside of the gaol, where a barouche was in waiting to convey them to the Castle-Inn, to a public breakfast. About 500 strangers were in the town as Mr Hunt was in progress from the gaol to the inn; his barouche was drawn by some working people. He wore over y t, his ordinary dress an Argyle tartan cloak, presented to him by the Reformers of Greenock; he was also decorated with the gold chain and medal some time since presented to him by the female Reform- ers of Leeds.—On reaching the inn, Mr. Hunt ad- dressed the persons around him, saying that he had been confined for two years and a half in yon- der dungeon, because he had struggled long and hard for the rights and liberties of his fellow countrymen; but that he had defeated the object of his enemies, for there he was, the same man as ever, not a whit less ready to exert or sacrifice him- self for his country. The company then sat down, 79 in number, to breakfast. A silver flagon and salver, presented to Mr. Henry Hunt by some re- formers, were laid on the table. The whole party afterwards moved forward in procession, preceded hy .a large cavalcade of yeomanry and farmers, for Glastonbury, where Mr. Hunt held a Court Leet for his manor of Glastonbury, for the purpose of ap- pointing two high constables for the town, and thirteen tithing-men for as many tithings. The C, business of the court being closed, there was a din- ner, Mr. Northmorein the chair, at which Mr. Hunt, Sir Charles Wolseley, and others made speeches analogous to the purpose of the meeting. The chairman having proposed as a toast, May the Whigs have the sense to give up their Boroughsad- lied, that when he started for Exeter, the Whigs and Tories united against him as if he were Beelzebub A Whig (he said) was a hypocrite, Clnd a Tory a downright thief ROYAt A-NSCDOTI:—A Correspondent on whom I we place much reliance, has favoured us with the following anecdote, which has not before appeared in print s—The celebrated Mr. C-ke of Norfolk, whose predilection for bearing Radical Addresses to the Throne is proverbial, had laid so many at the feet of the most exalted Personage in the realm, that at length his M y with a good humoured smile, said to him, If you bring me up any more of these Addresses, C-ke, I'll surely Knight you." Cheltenham Chron, SPORTING INTELLIGENCE.—It is rumoured that the Chancellor has been by no means successful in Partridge-shooting this year. His Lordship unfor- tunately conceived a notion that with a double- barrelled gun, he could double his execution, and accordingly has taken one out this season. The consequence has been that he has never been able to make up his mind which barrel to discharge, the two triggers suggest unconquerable doubts, of which the birds avail themselves and fly away. The miscarriage has been deeply deplored in his Lordship's hospitable mansion. NAPOLEON'S AGE.—On the evening of the day previous to the taking of the city of Milan, General Buonaparte, being then commander-in-chief of the army of Italy, was engaged to dine at [he mansion of a lady of consequence. This personage, consi- dering the distinguished rank, and above all, the illustrious name of her guest, conducted the honours of her table with the greatest attention and politeness. Napoleon, however, being fully occupied with the momentous events that were to characterize the succeeding day, replied with cold- ness and brevity to the repeated marks of deference which the hostess pointedly addressed towards him at length, in order to give animation to the company, she requested to know Buonaparte's age, adding by way of palliation of the apparent rude- ness of the inquiry, that he appeared by far too young to have already gained so many laurels!— Truly, madam, answered the General with a smile, I am not indeed very old at the present moment; but in less than twenty-four hours I shall count much more, for to-day I have to num- ber twenty-five years, whereas to-morrow I shall have attained Milan." (mille ans). [It may be requi- site to acquaint such readers as are unacquainted with the French tongue, that the words Milk Am express a thousand years.] MUSICAL COACHMEN.—The blowing of the horn by coachmen and guards of our mail-coaches, which has usually been considered as a sort of nuisance, is now, by the persevering labours of these ingenious gentlemen, converted into an instrument of public gratification. Most of the guards of the stage-coaches now make their en- trance and exit to the melody of some old national ballad, which, though it may not, perhaps, be played at present in such exact time and tune as would satisfy the leader of the Opera band, is yet pleasant in comparison to the unmeaning and discordant strains which formerly issued from the same quarter. A man, who wished to pass one of the barriers ot Paris, in 1793, was required to give his name, &c. to the persons on duty: "I am Monsieur le Marquis de St. Cyr. Citizen, there are no Mon- sieurs now."—" Very well, then, le Marquis de St.Cyr."—"You ought to know, citizen, that there are neither nobles, titles, nor mdrquisaH—" In that case, de St. Cyr, if you please."—" De is not used now."—" Then say simply, St. Cyr."—" Ah! but all saints, you know, have been abolished."— Well, if it must be so, write C!p'> No, citizen, there are no longer any Sires," (the pronunciation is the same). Thus, piece by piece, the unfortu- nate Marquis was stripped by the Revolution, till he found himself at the barrier of Paris without a name.-Anecdotes of the 19th Century. A young Englishman while at Naples was intro- duced at an assembly of one of the first Ladies by a Neapolitan Gentleman. While he was there his snuff-box was stolen from him. The next day, being at another house, he saw a person taking snuff out of his box. He ran to his friend- "There," said he, "that man in blue, with gold embroidery, is taking snuff out of the box stolen from me yesterday. Do you know him? Is he not a sharper," "Take care," said the other, that man is of the first quality." "I do not care for his quality," said the Englishman, "I must have my snuff-box again; I'll go and ask him for it."—" Pray," said his friend, be quiet, and leave it to me to get back your box." Upon this as- surance the Englishman went away, after inviting his friend to dine with him the next day. He ac- cordingly came, and as he entered, "There," said he, I have brought you your snuff-box." Well, how did you obtain it?" Why," said the Nea- politan Nobleman, "I did not wish to make any noise about it, therefore I picked his pocket of it," -Duten's Memoirs. An eminent Grocery Company in Dublin an. nounce in the newspapers of that city, that they have whiskey on sale which was drank by his Ma- jesty while in Ireland. A field preachcr, who had been a printer, ob- served in the usual harangue, "that youth might be compared to a comma, manhood to a senticoloit,, old age to a colon; to which death puts a period Gonsalvi coolly replied to an Englishman who made application about a robbery in the neighbour- hood of Rome," while there are forests and moun- tains, there must be robbers," COPPER ORE, Sold at REDRUTH on Thursday, Oct. 31.

'l Mark lane, Lorrdon, Nov. 4.—Last week there was a large arrival of wheat and flour, also good quantities of barley, beans, pease, and oats. This morning our fresh supply consists chiefly of fair quantities of wheat, barley, and bean's, from Essex and Kent. The large arrival of flour lias occa- sioned a very dull trade for wheat at the prices of this day k 31 se'nnight. Barley, that is fine for malting, sells freely a* last quotations other qualities are dillicult to sell. Boiling; pease sell very heavily, arid prices still give way. Beans, and grey pease both find buyers on full as good terms as our last. The prices of last week are maintained for oats, but sales are made only to a limited extent. The flour trade is excessively dull. Ked Wheat, old 22s to 40s Malt 44* t0 43^.

Fine wheitts are no better; but there was a disposition to buy good malting barley, at rather higher rates; grey pease also are much in request; prices as follow:—Wheat, 12s. to 20s., but general ruus 185.; Barley, 10s. to 19s. and Grey Pease, lis. to 13s. per coomb. Norwich Castle-Hill, Nov. 2.—The Show of Scotch Beasts (which were left over from St. Faith's) was tolerably large, and for the most part of good quality. Higher prices were demanded, and in many cases obtained to-day, the drovers having had a very brisk sale of late. On Monday last, it is.. said, upwards of 500 Beast were sold at St. Faith's. The Lamb trade is also a trifle better owing to the vast im- provement which the rains have effected in the Turnip- crop. Pigs are selling remarkably cheap. The number of fat Bullocks was not great, but, asyet, prices are no better. Lean Scots from 2s. 6d. to 4s., and even a trifle more per- stone, it in guotl condition; fat 5s. to 5s. 6d.
